Dr. Zugerman has been performing state of the art cosmetic procedures in dermatology for over twenty years. He enjoys being able to utilize his artistic talents by using new tools and techniques in dermatology.
The following tools and techniques have been particularly effective:
The new JUVÉDERM® XC now contains a anaesthetic called lidocaine so that it is almost painless. It is also now available in a smaller less expensive size. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is used more superficially while JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC is used in deep folds.
JUVÉDERM® XC is a smooth gel made from hyaluronic acid that restores depleted volume to the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. JUVÉDERM® XC differs from other hyaluronic acid fillers as it has a smooth consistency rather than granular, allowing for easy injections and instant results when treating the nasolabial folds and other facial wrinkles. This contains an aesthetic making it virtually painless.
The results of JUVÉDERM® XC injections are visible immediately, although patients may experience mild redness and swelling for the first hours. Patients can enjoy a smoother, more youthful appearance with a reduced appearance of lines and wrinkles across the face.
A JUVÉDERM® XC injection takes about 15 minutes to perform. Most patients achieve their desired results in just one procedure, but may undergo touch-up treatments in order to maintain their results, as JUVÉDERM® XC injections are effective in smoothing lines and wrinkles for up to one year.
Restylane® is a clear, transparent gel composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found throughout the body. Hyaluronic acid gives volume to your skin and can restore the depleted natural substances in the skin that cause loose, sagging skin as we age. This safe substance is injected under the skin to restore volume and fill in lines and deep wrinkles.
The results of the Restylane® injection are visible immediately, and will continue to improve for up to a week after the injection when full results are visible. With its unique ability to bind with water, Restylane is able to perform for many months in your skin, due to its unique ability to bind with water. This quality provides effective results for the glabellar lines, nasolabial folds and other areas of the face.
Restylane® treatment sessions take less than 30 minutes to perform, and most patients can achieve their desired results after just one session. Many patients choose to repeat the procedure a year after their initial treatment in order to maintain the results of Restylane®.
Voluma XC is injected into specific areas of the cheeks to instantly add volume to the cheek area which makes one look younger. A new formula of hyaluronic acid, produced by Allergan gives an instant boost to your face in a natural looking way and the results last up to two years!
This procedure should only be performed by specially trained dermatologists and surgeons skilled in this area. Dr. Zugerman has received specific training for this new product.
Voluma XC adds volume to areas where it has been diminished by aging. This product makes the facial profile look younger while making other deep folds in the face less noticeable!
Radiesse® is a synthetic injectable filler that has been FDA-approved to reduce moderate to severe wrinkles, folds and creases around the nose and mouth by augmenting the skin's natural collagen supply. This creates a younger appearance ideal for patients between the ages of 35 and 60.
The results of Radiesse® injections are visible immediately, with most patients able to achieve their optimum results in just one or two treatment sessions. Radiesse® allows patients to enjoy an overall younger, fuller and smoother appearance that looks completely natural.
Radiesse® injections can be administered in Dr. Zugerman's office in just a few minutes, with results lasting up to a year or even longer for many patients. Touch-up sessions can help maintain these results even longer.
